Paragon Studios Launches
Acclaimed Guest Author Missions in City of Heroes

City of Heroes’ Guest Author
program adds original community created content into the world’s most popular
super-powered hero MMO

Paragon Studios is proud to announce
the addition of Bill Willingham, along with Rooster Teeth and Scott Kurtz as
inaugural participants in the recently announced Guest Author program, made
possible through the revolutionary Mission Architect tool set in City of Heroes.
The Guest Author program provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity for influential
writers and aspiring game or story designers to work alongside a world-class
development team to bring their ideas to life within a massive multiplayer
online role playing game.

As one of North America’s most
popular MMO games and the premier MMO based on character super powers, City of
Heroes is the perfect medium for writers and story creators of all kinds hoping
to expand their audience and extend their reach into a large and enthusiastic
community. Through the power of the Mission Architect tool, every player can
create his or her own adventures and share those adventures with every other
hero or villain in Paragon City and the Rogue Isles.

The four inaugural guest author
missions will premiere in-game on Tuesday, October 13, following the
Reactivation and Double XP weekend that’s going on now. The missions can be
found in game by opening the browser inside one of the Architect Entertainment
Buildings. Here are brief descriptions of the Guest Author missions:

gallery of the LOLBAT’s greatest foes, are looking to expand their heinous if
not artfully influenced crime syndicate into Paragon City. If you know what’s
good for you and the citizens you protect, you won’t let that happen. Luckily,
the LOLBAT knows how these guys work and he’s ready to help you defeat these
pompous profligates.
